Veterans Affairs Council (VAC) minister Feng Shih-kuan, on Thursday (December 2) said that the council will send an envoy of two retired military officials next year to the US to oversee Taiwan-US veteran affairs cooperation.

During a Foreign Affairs and National Defense Committee meeting at the Legislative Yuan, Feng said that retired Army Major general Ni Pang-chen has been appointed to head a VAC liaison office, while retired Navy Captain Cheng Kuo-feng will serve as deputy head. They will assume their positions in the US on January 3.

Feng pointed out that in October, AIT director Sandra Oudkirk paid a visit to the VAC and met with Ni and Cheng. The VAC minister noted that Cheng and Oudkirk hit it off during that first meeting.

In November, the US Congress delegation came to Taiwan, during which Mark Takano, chair of the US House Committee on Veterans Affairs, called on the VAC to meet with Feng.
